Congratulations to some of our Y6 children who have progressed to the second round of the Young Mathematicians’ Awards.

NRICH has worked with Explore Learning since 2010 to hold the Young Mathematicians’ Award.Β  Each year, teams of four primary children from schools across the UK take part in local events then five teams are chosen to come to NRICH headquarters in Cambridge for the final.

At each stage of the competition, teams work on an NRICH task and are judged on two things: how well they use their problem-solving skills to think like mathematicians and how well they work as a team.

The tasks are particularly challenging and are likely to seem quite different to the sorts of maths activities you might do at school in lessons.

Well done- we look forward to hearing of their success!
